Awful job. Very easy in terms of workload. Absolutely zero training opportunities. Nurses more interested in discharging patients than the ones you deemed unwell Positively unsafe. Ortho reg just told you to phone med reg for any problems. Very easy job and lots of breaks but no training, no teaching.

General Surgery at Freeman is split into HPB, Colorectal and Vascular surgery. You will be placed on one of these as your main job, and your on-calls cover all three departments. All are understaffed. Nights tend to be relaxed compared to medicine overnight. Seniors are supportive, but no training opportunities or chance to get to theatre as the main service provision roles keep you too busy.

Extremely busy days and nights. You cross cover ENT (and vice versa) on nights which you get a a brief training session (if you can make it) and a PDF. Urology reg on site 24hs, ENT is non-resident on-call overnight. Staffing is a mix of F1s, F2s, and ST1-2s. The STs suck up all the surgery time so F1-F2s are delighted to “ward monkey” status. Rushed ward round, followed by jobs the rest of the day. One junior is on-call who takes referrals from wards, ED, GPs, and community. Clerks pts in the assessment unit with the reg who are frequently in theatre.
